How Kate Will Spend Valentine's Day Without William, Official Solo Engagements, News On The Cambridge Puppy and More

Good evening Kate fans,
I have some exciting news to share with you regarding Kate's first solo engagements but before we move on to that I am glad to report Prince William had landed safely in the Falklands. Flight Lieutenant William Wales arrived at RAF Mount Pleasant at 5.20 pm London time after an eighteen hour flight. The Minisitry of defence said 
"Ministry of Defence can confirm Flight lieutenant Wales, as part of a 4 man search and rescue crew, has arrived in the Falklands on a routine operational deployment and will shortly take up search and rescue duties post a period of briefings and a familiarisation flight".

Prince William's six week tour of duty will no doubt be a difficult time for Kate. I must admit I feel incredibly sorry for Kate. I know I would find it immensely difficult to be separated from my boyfriend for such a duration and Kate has the added pressure of royal duties and being in the public eye. A time she needs William's support more than ever. Last summer when Kate met a military wife she said
"I don't know how you manage. I miss William so much when he's away. He went once for four weeks and I missed him so much".

Kate's solo engagements begin next Wednesday (February 8th) with a visit to the Lucien Freud exhibition at the National Portrait Museum. I think this is an ideal choice for Kate's first solo role. As an Art History graduate she will already be sufficiently prepared and has paid visits to the museum last Autumn.


I would imagine Valentine's Day will be a challenging day for Kate, considering it's William and Kate's first Valentine's Day as a married couple. Kate will be keeping herself very busy with three engagements scheduled in Liverpool for February 14th. As patron of Action On Addiction the Duchess will visit alcohol free bar The Brink.

Later that day Kate will pay a visit to the Ronald McDonald House. A house at Alder Hey hospital which provides accommodation for sick children and their families. Kate will also visit the hospital itself. Duchess Kate's kind personality is going to shine through at these engagements and I think we're going to get to know her a little better too :)

It has been revealed by Clarence House, William and Kate's adorable three month old puppy is a cocker spaniel. The playful pup comes from a litter bred by Carole Middleton who adores the breed. The Middletons have a cocker spaniel called Ella who could be the mother of the puppy.The puppy is the couple's first pet together and replaces Prince William's black labrador, Widgeon who died a couple of years ago. The couple do not wish for the dogs name to be revealed.

  8. I don't understand why they don't want the dogs name released? Is it that big of a deal?

  9. They are notoriously private about every aspect of their personal lives. I expect we'll find out though, these things tend to be asked by fans or people at engagements.
